I didn’t mock Hapunda but told him to be thankful he wasn’t handed to police – Lubinda

Embattled Kabwata Member of Parliament Given Lubinda has distanced himself from media reports that he was mocking dismissed Southern Province PF provincial secretary Brian Hapunda in his email to him.
Mr Lubinda said it is common knowledge that we are living in an environment where people enjoy pouring scorn at each other but he is not in the habit of doing so.
He said this in Lusaka yesterday at Amaka Lodge when he officiated at a Charity Fundraising breakfast organised by St Simon Small Christian Community (SCC).
Mr Lubinda who is also Kabwata member of Parliament said his email to Mr Hapunda was done in good faith urging him to thank God for President Sata’s leniency  in ending at dismissing him when he could have been handed over to the police.
“I believe The Post Journalist that got a hold of my email must have thought I am hitting back at Mr Hapunda for scorning me at the time I was being accused of leaking information to opposition members of Parliament. He probably thought I was jumping at an opportunity to revenge,” he said.
He said it is not good for anyone to rejoice when another is going through adversity, especially a young man like Mr Hapunda who is in the morning of his political career.
Mr Lubinda said it is not his wish to mock anyone but to uplift others when they are down.
